I am a Gibson Les Paul purist and to see a maple neck on a Les Paul is blasphemous. If I want to play a guitar with a maple neck I will grab a Charvel or a Fender Stratocaster. When it comes to Gibson Les Pauls is just irks me to see a guitar that that is designed around the mahogany wood type to have a goofy looking maple neck on there. Then to have a black headstock on it just looks silly to say the least.

These guitars are going to sound a bit different then what you are used to if you have any experience with a Gibson Les Paul. Since it has a maple neck the tone will not be as strong or as beefy as we know LP to sound. This will lighten up the overall nature since the maple wood is a lighter wood which produces a tone that is brighter where the mahagony is going to be a darken and warmer wood type.


These guitars were on a limited run and thank God for that. Gibson has been producing some scratch your head type guitar as of lately and it seems the company has been going down hill real quick.

The used market is the only way to get these guitars now. I have seen them on the use market for under $1000. Not a bad price but this really isn't a Gibson Les Paul. This is a goofy looking guitar that has slapped Les Paul in the face.
